Singapore orchids come on a stem with multiple blooms almost all year round. They are great in corsages and boutonnaires. Yes, they are imported from Singapore and on the odd occasion are ruined in the fumigation process, fortunately not often. (Unavailable late December early January)
Come in a variety of colours - pinks, white, coral, yellow. Readily available in Spring, Summer and Autumn. Also called Antirrihinums. A great value flower.
Tulips for a declaration of love. "Come to my aid thou tulip red, Go and declare my love instead. Unknown." While tulips open up quickly, if bought in good time can look amazing. Beware - tulips keep growing in length once cut. Late winter/early Spring
